Abstract
This project team is developing a prototype of software for a tablet computer to replace paper tests for teachers to assess the reading fluency of special education students in grade 5 and 6. The technology will provide: scoring and tracking assessments with a stop watch for appropriate timing of questions, upload of data generated from the assessment directly to a database, audio playback capability, and a backend service to verify scores or recommends changes. Pilot research in Phase I will seek to demonstrate that the software prototype functions as planned, and that teachers are able to integrate it within the classroom environment.
